Exploring Monash University – Clayton Campus
Okay guys, today I’m going to Monash University in Clayton. I need to go there because I want to check out their library they should have some journals I need for my research and while I’m there I’m also going to show you around in the university a bit, so follow me along. So I’m now at Huntingtdale Station, which
is the closest railway station to Monash University but it’s still about four kilometers on foot so I’m not going to do that and instead I’m gonna take a bus. And that brings us to the biggest downside of Monash University It doesn’t have a train station on site, so you will need to take a bus and this you will feel in the transport time. So if you want to study there you might consider getting a place that is walking distance away from Monash University. Now, Monash University does have a big
bus station and there are a lot of buses coming in but when you have to get here from the city will still take you a long time, so keep that in mind. Welcome at Monash University guys!
Let me show you around a bit. Now, I mentioned that Monash doesn’t have a
railway station, but what they do have is a really, really big parking space behind
me, so check it out. Just on the other side of the road which
passes by the parking station we have CSIRO, which is Australia’s national
research institution. Right, but we’re not having a video about
CSIRO, so let’s head back to the campus because we haven’t even seen half of it.
It’s really huge guys! Alright, I’m now at the library, so
let’s see if I could find these journals I’m looking for. I managed to find the articles I was looking for
so let’s continue the tour around Monash. Monash University actually has a lot of
sports facilities: they have two large oval-shaped grass fields for playing
cricket or Australian football. They also have two rectangular grass fields for
European-style football. They have six tennis courts, they have a swimming pool.
In a nutshell: they have a lot! Now, behind me you can see the Campus Center.
In this place they have a lot of shops and restaurants, even some banks, so everything you need
you can find right here. And like that I’m back at the starting
point of this tour. So in summary: Monash is a really big
University, it has a lot of facilities: Shops, banks, sporting fields, you name it.
They have pretty much everything. But it is a bit far to reach by public
transport so if you don’t have a car or don’t live close to a direct bus connection,
you might end up taking a while to get here. But in the end it’s a really beautiful campus
and it’s definitely worth checking out! That’s it for this week’s video guys. I was impressed by Monash University,
